Asbestos

The Asbestos Hazard Emergence Response Act (AHERA) requires our school to notify school employees and parents of the presence and status of asbestos containing materials in our school buildings. The law further requires a management plan based upon the findings of the initial inspection completed in 1988. Mililani Uka has been inspected and no asbestos containing building materials were found in any of the buildings.
